It's a sleeping disorder, because of mental stress. Try to avoid stress, start meditation and yoga, you need some counselling sessions with homoeopathic medication. Temporary relief - passiflora - q, 10 drops in half cup of water, 2 times a day.

Hello, I think you should get a vision test done to rule out any refractive error. If there is any, go for prescription glasses. If you are using computer / mobile for long use a tear substitute eye drop and try and cut screen hours as much possible. Take a balanced diet, you can also start with a multivitamin supplement. Take optimum sleep. Take care.

Hi Dr. I am constantly getting heat boils on my forehand. And there are few in numbers. Kindly advise and even advise what I need to consume to avoid it. Advance thanks.

Diploma in homeopathy, B. Sc
Homeopath, Gurgaon
Boils are ways your body uses to get rid of toxicity - unless it's a local infection, it isn't very smart to suppress the boil. What one needs to do is to find the reason for the eruption. And believe you me, in a majority of cases it ones diet and the lack of essential mineral salts. Your diet must include fresh fruits and a full serving of salads at every meal: cucumber, tomato, carrot, radish, onion slices or spring onion, raw cauliflower, cabbage leaf, etc. All this is essential. Cut out any junk food and aerated drinks totally. Generally foods that come out of a packet, can or bottle shud be avoided. Exercise to increase circulation:- 2 mins of hard exercise then 1 min rest - do this four times a day. You can either do it all in one go or split it into sessions through the day. In total it is only 12 mins a day so should not be a big issue. In short, live and eat healthy and you will develop energy, a glowing skin and a'go' in life -regardless of age contact for meds.

Basic purpose of the film is that the medicine should penetrate inside the skin and you can also use a plastic pouch and make sure it remains in one place to apply pressure.

If you have recurrent attack of headache1. It could be a tension headache due to anxiety/stress, inadequate sleep, low bp/high bp, migraine, prolonged use of cell phone/computer, chronic anaemia, refractive error, chronic sinusitis, organic brain lesion 2. Avoid stress, physical and mental exertion, have adequate sound sleep for 7-8 hours daily in the night 3. Go for regular exercise 4. Practice yoga, meditation and deep breathing exercise to calm your mind, control your emotion and relieve stress 5. Check for refractive error, sinusitis hemoglobin, bp 6.

I am 35 years old man. I am suffering from bipolar psychiatric problem. How should I get rid of this?
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Bipolar disorder, with its extreme mood swings from depression to mania, used to be called manic depressive disorder. Bipolar disorder is very serious and can cause risky behavior, even suicidal tendencies, and can be treated with therapy and medication. Please work with your psychiatrist for a cure. Take care.

I am 26 years old male and I am suffering from internal piles at 2nd stage. I do not interest to go for operation. Please suggest me for how to clear this issue without taking english medicine. What should I do now?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Take homoepathic medication - Aesculus Hipp. 30/ thrice daily and apply Topi-Aesculus cream over the piles for few months. If it’s better, then continue or else will have to go for other options such as rubber band ligation, surgery, cauterization, etc. Management: Soak regularly in a warm bath or sitz bath. Soak your anal area in plain warm water 10 to 15 minutes two to three times a day. A sitz bath fits over the toilet. You can get one at most drugstores. If you are constipated, use a laxative. Keep the anal area clean. Bathe (preferably) or shower daily to cleanse the skin around your anus gently with warm water. Soap isn't necessary and may aggravate the problem. Avoid alcohol based or perfumed wipes. Gently dry the area with a hair dryer after bathing. Don't use dry toilet paper. To help keep the anal area clean after a bowel movement, use moist towelettes or wet toilet paper that doesn't contain perfume or alcohol. Apply cold. Apply ice packs or cold compresses on your anus to relieve swelling. Walking is the best exercise for your whole body as well as the piles as it increases the blood circulation to every part of body. Avoid sitting for long hours together. Include more fibrous food in your diet like fruits, green vegetables, salads. YOGA FOR PILES Pavanmuktasana: Keep your hands by the side of your body in a supine position. While inhaling, raise both your legs to 90 and bend them at the knees. Make a finger-lock with both your hands around them, a little below the knees. While exhaling, bring your thighs close to the chest by contracting the abdominal muscles. Maintain this posture for a few seconds. Then return to the original posture in the reverse order as Ardha Pavan Muktasana. Repeat the asana three to four times. Vajrasana: Keep the soles of the feet on both sides of the anus, i.e., place the thighs on the legs one over the other and the soles on the buttocks. The calves must touch the thighs. The part from the toe to the knee should touch the ground. The whole burden of the body is put on the knees and ankles. The beginning of practice you may feel a slight pain in the knee and ankle-joints but it passes off very quickly. After fixing the feet and the knees, put both the hands straight on the knees. Keep the knees quite close. Sit like this keeping the trunk, neck and head in one straight line.

Your fasting blood sugar is low. You should adjust your medication to keep fasting blood sugar above 70. Pp mainly depends on your meal. For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 10-15 post meals will help reduce your pp value. Follow a stress free life.

Dear lybrateuser, - There is no fixed time to drink milk, you can have a bowl at breakfast with oats or cereals with fresh fruits & a glass before bedtime as it helps induce a sound sleep - you can also have milk products like yogurt, cheese, paneer, butter milk which also provide good amount of calcium .
